Zucchini Pasta Alfredo with Chicken

I love Italian food, especially when it’s pasta! But why eat spaghetti that’s high-carb and nutritionally empty? Zucchini noodles are easy to make on a mandoline slicer or vegetable spiralizer. Traditional Pasta Alfredo is made with heavy cream and Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, a dairy load my body can’t tolerate.

Heinz is yummy – however THIS ketchup is tastier! Tart, sweet, and rich all at the same time. If tomatoes are off your list, this recipe is for you. It’s made of carrot, sweet potato, and beet, but you’d never guess. Commercial ketchup is loaded with high-fructose corn syrup or sugar. So why buy it

An accidental discovery, this is now my absolute favorite “cheese” for Pizza. We DO want cheese on our pizza! It slices beautifully, and uses pure coconut instead of dairy.
